suckerPUNCH: describe your project:
yaohua WANG: this x_lab, taught by peter testa, provided an platform to explore the convergence of generative computing and advance materials. in this project, research included computation( mel scripting), material science( carbon fiber) and onsite constructions. then engage the research with extreme environments and climates as testing grounds(under the ocean, in space, in the body, in a forest, in urban area).
the lichtfaktor crew intentionally uses the entire space in which a particular work is produced and integrates it into their photos and animated films in such a way that it’s not just a backdrop but a part of the work itself. for us “lightwriting” is an evolution and a chance to animate graffiti characters in urban landscapes
